Someone sent me this link today and I was so shocked by this I thought it must be an internet hoax or something. Can this be true? It looks like it's genuinely from the Telegraph, but I can't believe that in Western Europe after 40 years of feminism, women are being expected to be prostitutes? Is this for real? Somebody tell me it's a hoax, please!
Makes you really think about the whole issue of legalising prostitution. Amazing, imagine being sued because you didn't make women take up sex industry jobs against their will. Madness. Complete and utter madness!
If prostitution is accepted as legal and therefore there's nothing wrong with it, it's just like any other job.
If unemployed people can be forced into doing any job, then why not force them into prostitution? Its legality is proof of its suitability.
Obviously, I don't believe that, but if you accept that unemployed people should be forced into jobs and you accept that prostition should be legal, then it's illogical to argue that benefit claimants shouldn't be forced to accept a job like any other.
That's what's so mad about it Caligula, the fact that morally we don't think that people should be forced into the sex industry and yet legally they can be. Just another reminder that the powers that be don't think things through.
One thing is though, surely there's a case here, just like any other job, that a woman could apply for the job making it clear that she didn't want to engage in anything 'sexual' and if she was taken on anyway and asked to 'perform' she could leave the job and cite sexual harrassment and/or discrimination?
